Sometimes it's fun watching stuff in a group! Impromptu streams can be difficult to organize and often get lost in the shuffle in random threads, so here's a dedicated thread for them.

Post about a stream in here if you start one!

Common Livestreaming Options:
https://synchtu.be/: Synchtube and clones. Can stream videos from hosts like Youtube or Dailymotion and is compatible with any https video link. Can be annoying with ads between videos. Cytube is currently the preferred site since they have the only workaround for Google Drive's new player.
https://rabb.it/: rabb.it. Able to stream content from virtually any web link. You can log into your Crunchyroll, Hulu, Netflix, or whatever with it, and stream using your sub.

Google Drive works with virtually any video container, but it can't play softsubs. To work around this, you either use an already hardsubbed video source (usually as an .mp4) or hardsub the video yourself. The easiest way to do this is to open the video in Handbrake, click on the subtitles tab, and click add track. Then check the burn-in option next to the subtitles and start encoding. Use auto passthru in the audio tab to copy the audio stream if its in a lossy format (e.g., AAC or MP3) or encode to AAC if it's lossless (e.g, FLAC).

Grabbing a hardsubbed release is preferred because 1) it's easier, and 2) hardsubbed releases will be free of formatting errors that Handbrake can introduce.

If you want fancy hardsubs that properly render the typesetting Handbrake messes up, use this guide.

I'm surprised Squark of all people doesn't know how many episodes there are in Gintama.

I mean, by the time we get to the end of what's available, there might be more!

Is there a good way to stream videos straight from your hard drive?

If you upload them to Google Drive, those links are compatible with synctube. Else, there's using OBS and something like Ustream, but your stream might get shut down for copyright violation.

Do you mean you want to stream something right from your computer? OBS is usually the go to standard for that. You can limit the resolution you're streaming at in the settings.

If you just want to share videos, what we usually do is upload them on google drive and using the links for a synchtube clone.

I've tried Google Drive, but it can't read the link or something. I get the message "The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported."

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2KMypbnD9TCdXV2OE14SUhUNnc/view?usp=sharing

All for this file, which most definitely is .mp4.

Google Drive changed their player. Cytube has a workaround, but I don't think any of the other synctube clones have it.
